Juergen Klinsmann has named a 22-man USA squad for next week’s international friendlies with France and Slovenia.

The US face the French in Paris on November 11 before heading to Ljubljana to meet Slovenia four days later.

Klinsmann has named a strong roster for the double-header, including Fulham ace Clint Dempsey, LA Galaxy star Landon Donovan and Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard.

“These games are valuable opportunities for us as we continue to explore and evaluate everyone in the national team program,” said Klinsmann.

“We have started to build a foundation on our playing style, and every time we are together the team gets a more precise picture of how I want to see things done on the field. We want to continue to progress so we are able to challenge teams like France, who have earned their place as one of the top 15 teams in the world.”
